We, the Connolly Youth Movement support the YES vote in the upcoming divorce referendum on Friday the 24th of May 2019,  currently, the law according to the constitution of the twenty six mandates that a married couple must be separated for four of the last five years to be granted a divorce, if the yes vote were to win, the oireachtas will then have the power to shorten this period to two years, while not perfect this is a far more preferable state of affairs, we believe this because we view it as an unnecessary invasion of privacy to have to prove that you have been separated for four of the last five years. This makes mutual divorces unnecessarily complex and poses many problems for someone facing domestic abuse from their spouse.

"The European elections scheduled for May 23 are illegitimate in Britain", John Foster told the Communist Party's political committee on Wednesday evening.

He insisted that the "people's vote" in the biggest poll in British history in June 2016 was to leave the European Union and that this should be reinforced by a "People's Boycott" of the EU elections if they go ahead.

"Britain should have left the EU and its institutions by now, almost three years after the result - but this been prevented so far by a majority of MPs and the Tory Cabinet who want to keep us tied to EU single market and customs union rules if they can't sabotage Brexit altogether", the CP international secretary said.

These backlashes and rewriting of struggles are depressingly common and generally follow when women or any oppressed group have gained ground – a reversion to the status quo. In both Spain and Ireland catholic institutions and practices were used to place a stranglehold on women’s rights. Fascist Spain offered celebration of “Nationalist Womanhood” and “mother of the nation” type traditional and repressive sensibilities while Ireland had the “special place” of women in the home enshrined in the constitution.

The event was so oversubscribed it was beamed live into university colleges such as Downing, and into the politics and sociology faculties.
